Lunch was a jacket potato with homemade veg chilli. 408 calories in total, would have been 85 less but when I was meal prepping I added too much water so needed to thicken it up with cornflour. @florettesalad with half a beef tomato and cucumber with @hellmans__ fat free vinegarette. So filling and full of veg to keep me going. Gonna chill and let that go down then gonna smash my housework whilst the bairn is at nursery and do a quick work out 🏋‍♀😋 .

Health is not a season but a lifetime. It’s uncomfortable at times. It exposes you and tests your determination! Despite all of that, keep going! This thing called life doesn’t go our way 100% of the time,but that’s not a reason to quit. Get back on the horse. Get back in the gym. Get back to eating healthy and drinking your water! You got this! I’m rooting for you! You got this!

Been super negative lately, don’t really know what most of it is about, BUT ANYWAY. Today I was struggling with my lifts, that my lovely boyfriend forced me to give a go (thanks @fittychip ), and while I had a good day and wasn’t really cranky about anything, I used all of that rage I’ve built up about nothing and pushed like hell, AND I SQUATTED 100KG (with some assistance). Just sayin, sometimes you can use your anger for good and not evil, also carbs, I have had pasta everyday this week 😅🥰🤤 #legday #liftheavy #strongnotskinny #gains #tough #squats #musclenation

*No Crunches Ab Work*

Don’t underestimate these small movements, both these exercises fire up the core like crazy! As there’s no crunching involved, these are also preggers friendly🤰🏽☺️ Definitely 1st & early 2nd trimester anyway!
******************************************************
🔺🎥 1.
Plank Alternating Reaches
3 Sets of 20 Reps
🔺🎥 2.
Bear Stance Shoulder Taps
3 Sets of 10 Reps
• •
I used a weight in front for the plank reaches just for something to reach to, I found it helps to focus and keeping the hips still.
^^ For both exercises, main goal is to keep the torso as still as you can. Keep the tailbone tucked and squeeze the butt, lean your weight forward slightly over the elbows/ wrists! ******************************************************
Have another one filmed but haven’t got round to editing yet 😅 Will post soon though!

Goals are individual, not universal. Just because someone can run longer & faster, lift heavier, squats lower doesn’t mean that your effort isn’t just as valid. So, work hard for YOU and for your OWN goals. Progress will come. A little progress each day adds up to big results. Pe patient & enjoy the process. Don’t compare your progress with the one of others, we all need our own time to travel our own distance. No one is the same, no body is the same, no goals are the same, so also no program should be the same. Find your own path & make it happen! YOUR GOAL 🔛 YOUR STRUGGLE 🔛 YOUR FIGHT Just don’t stop & don’t quit! Of cause I’m also struggling sometimes, we all do! But I just DON’T QUIT! Don’t quit because the road is hard...good things come from hard work 😉 #dontstop #dontquit #nevergiveup #keepyourfocus #yourgoal #yourstruggle #yourfight #bepatient #enjoytheprocess #youarestrongerthanyouthink #yourgoalsyourrace #findyourownpath #makeithappen #trainsmartnothard #onlyyoucanmakeithappen #cherisheverymoment #enjoyyourjourney #alwaysunderconstruction #workforit #bethebestversionofyourself #gymmotivation #strongnotskinny #strongisthenewskinny

Took the last two days as #restdays as my body was literally telling me to #slowdown #recover #reenergise and #recoup
Taking a few day’s out of your routine and training will not set you back. It will help prevent over training, injuries and let your muscles repair and grow... I feel so much better for resting it out and was able to come back stronger today! Make sure you schedule in rest days just like you schedule in training days.

Why the scales don’t mean sh*t.👇.
.
.
Whenever I speak to a new client & they tell me they want to be a certain number it pains me a little 🙃 - I’ll tell you why:
.
.
A couple of years ago I remember telling my (then) boyfriend that I didn’t want to weigh any more than 64kg as that was my “top end” weight. In fact every time I got above that weight I’d panic & start a new diet. 🤦🏻‍♀️.
.
.
My goal has always been to have a “toned” looking physique with bigger legs & glutes - Little did I realise that despite doing all of the “right things” this obsession with being below a certain number was what was actually stopping me from achieving what I really wanted.
.
.
Once I stopped focusing on what I weighed & more on just enjoying a balanced lifestyle, consistently pushing myself in the gym & eating enough so I could properly fuel those sessions. I started to see what I’d always wanted to see. 🍑 👀. I got stronger, fitter & started to grow. I gained a little fat initially but over time it went. Most importantly I got happier & became more comfortable in my own skin. 🤗. .
.
I still diet for bikini competitions but outside of that I train because I love it, I eat well because it makes me feel good & I look after my body because I’m grateful for it. This is the approach I encourage in my clients - this whole thing is a lifestyle! I don’t do on/off & we focus on fuelling good quality training rather than restricting.
.
.
Yes it’s ok to want to lose weight & have short term fat loss goals, I help people do that every day! but for those who are stuck in the situation I was in & aren’t seeing the “shape” they want to see - learn from my mistakes - don’t waste your life with silly self-imposed rules or waiting for “that day” you hit your goal weight. Just enjoy living a healthier lifestyle & be prepared to come out of your comfort zone! The changes will then come as a result of that.
.
.
Oh & yesterday morning when I took this picture - I weighed 66kg & felt great so 🖕 to that 64! 😉💁🏻‍♀️.

Yesterday was a willpower Wednesday for me. I flexed my will power muscle all day. By the end of the day, I was tired, but I remained committed to the workout I skipped in the morning. I came home, changed my clothes, and got it done. Two more days with students; four more days at work. #teacherlife #highschoolteacher #happyteacher #balancedteacher #teacherbyday #keepitwild #liveoutdoors #lovelifeoutside #exerciseforlife #fitteacher #strongnotskinny #homefitness #exerciseathome #homeexercises #moveyourbody #justbreathe #nourishyourself #wellnessjourney

Baby steps to pull-ups 💪🏻 My arms are by far the weakest part of my body so I can’t wait to one day be able to do just ONE unassisted pull-up. Until then...this is a good start 😂
.
.
Another long day ahead of me & am forever grateful these morning workouts give me enough energy to make it until I get home again at 7pm 🙌🏻
.
.
Happy Friday Jr y’all! Hope everyone is off to an excellent day 👊🏻

Overnight steel cut oats with fruit and melty nut butter. 🤤😍 This is my go-to breakfast because I can just grab it out of the fridge, heat, add fruit and enjoy! Recipe: .
.
.
1/4 cup of @naturespathorganic steel cut oats, 1/2 cup of @almondbreeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 tsp of cinnamon(or more😉), stevia to taste if desired. Mix ingredients together and store overnight / up to 1 week in the fridge. When ready to serve, microwave for 2 minutes and then add your fruit and nut butter and enjoy a balanced, wholesome breakfast! .

Can’t contain my excitement anymore! I may not have the certificate yet (watch this space in July), but I have now past my Certificate 3 & 4 course in Group/Personal Training!! I can now help people feel good about themselves, help them get fit and strong and also (one of my main goals) is to make females feel comfortable going to the weight section of the gym!!! 💪
I had a few little hiccups and ups and downs which is why it took a little longer than normal, but I’m soo.. happy I have pass it!!! Can’t wait to train people!!! 💪 #projectfit #fitnessaddict #workout #gym #training #active #stronggirls #motivation #exercise #girlswholift #fit #fitnessmodel #fitspo #fitfam #trainhard #weights #getfit #shredlife #gains #rawfitspo #girlswithmuscle #strongnotskinny #armgains #iphonexportrait #fammely #nofilter #cleaneating #personaltrainerinthemaking

Working out in the summer is hard! So much traveling, so many visitors, and so many activities! .
I’m so glad, I was realistic with myself, and picked a 20minute program that I could stick to. .
C’mon 20minutes, you can make it happen. Before you hop in the shower, while your grilling dinner, just get it done!
.
It will give you an energy boost, pump you with feel good endorphins, aaaannndd make you feel better in that bathing suit!
.
.
If you want to know what 20minute program I’m doing, drop an emoji or DM me!

You guys...the moment I submit I’m going to start on my next book in my series. I’ve been so busy lately but I love unleashing my creative flow. That with exercise helps me keep my sanity. I always joke that Mike is the idea guy but I put the plan together but I think my ideas just come in different ways! 💛 📸: @willowraephotography
